New apartmentsCan you get some information on the huge project that is taking place behind the Harris Teeter on Nimmo Parkway? – Ken Beatty

Construction is under way for Southern Pines Apartments – a nine building, gated, luxury apartment community that will open by late next summer. The apartment complex’s address is 2476 Nimmo Pkwy.

The $44 million project will include a two-story clubhouse, fitness center, dog park and walking trails, according to Richard Hughes, superintendent for Marlyn Development Corporation of Virginia Beach. Many homes on the 17.5 acre site will overlook Virginia Beach National Golf Club.
